The alligator

Walking along the riverbank 
'twas thought a maid fell in and sank
But it came to light a little later
She'd been eaten by an alligator
And her mate as well
A mindless cretin
Jumped in to help 
And he was eaten

    Thank you. You inspired me to write a poem about the alligator. I like to write poems about animals. And the alligator was sadly missing until now.
